Theory Of A Deadman, Skillet, and Saint Astonia Rock Pikeville!
Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville, Kentucky has hosted many great shows over the years. From ZZ Top to Chris Stapleton and everywhere in-between. The folks in charge are delightful people and the venue is a tremendous asset to Pikeville, and all of Eastern Kentucky. Having said that, we are thrilled to be able to bring you coverage of the massive rock show that featured Saint Astonia, Skillet, and Theory Of A Deadman. Saint Astonia was up first. They’ve had some band member changes over the years, but the core of Adam Gontier (Ex-Three Days Grace) and guitarist Mike Mushok (Staind) has remained. That combination has been the glue of Saint…

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Rocked Rupp Arena
Trans-Siberian Orchestra once again put on a spectacular performance and brought the heat to Rupp Arena, in Lexington, KY. After a couple of years missed due to the pandemic, TSO returned with their, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve: The Best of Trans-Siberian Orchestra” show. If TSO is new to you, here’s a quick look at what the show has to offer at every single show: The creation of Paul O’Neill (1957-2017), TSO incorporates music, video, lighting, special effects, and even bubbles, to transport audience members into the “story” being told. Bryan Hicks is the narrator as amazing vocalists and musicians transport you into the story of a young child, far…
Styx Brought All Of Their Hits To Rock The Fans At The Corbin Arena
It was the first concert of the year for the rock group Styx, where they returned to Corbin for their second appearance in Corbin. Styx entertained an audience of around 3000 people at the Corbin Arena. A real gem of a venue tucked away, just off of I-75. Styx has a vast catalog of music, and their hits have spanned across several decades, so it was no surprise that the fans were on their feet and singing along the entire night. Besides, there’s a reason this band has continued to thrive, and it was on full-display in Corbin. It’s their musicianship, closely followed by their showmanship. Styx know how to…
Unparelled Growth: Kentucky’s Tyler Booth Shines At Headliners In Louisville
If you’re new to Capture Kentucky, welcome. If you’re here once again, welcome back! Either way, you’ve likely arrived upon this article because of Tyler Booth. The young man from Wolfe County is in the midst of completing his first solo headlining tour. With a stop at Headliners Music Hall in Louisville being the focus here. Capture Kentucky has been a constant supporter of Tyler since he began his career path in music, so I decided to use this opportunity to give some insight into that relationship as we recap his performance from Saturday night. I have known the Booth family for a very long time. Somewhere between 15 and…
Red Clay Strays Deliver A Moment Of Truth At The Loud In Huntington With Eric Bolander
Sometimes. music throws me a curveball. It’s pretty rare these days, but occasionally an artist or band from outside our Commonwealth comes along unexpectedly, and their music rockets them into heavy rotation for me. When that happens, I feel incredibly compelled to share those artists. I make every effort to try and shine a light on them, and I’ve basically made it my job to do so. It’s a responsibility that you folks have come to expect, and I don’t take it lightly. Another but here though, sometimes though, an artist comes along and I know the best way to convey how I feel is to just let my emotions…
Concert Review: Healing Appalachia 2022, A Two-Day Musical Mission To Battle The Opioid Crisis In Appalachia
If you’ve been a fan of our site, you’ve likely seen us mention Healing Appalachia several times. We were able to cover the first event, and you can find our coverage from that event, here. If you’re unfamiliar with Healing Appalachia, allow me to provide you with an overview of the mission and some reasons that this event is extremely important.

A Journey In Growth. Morgan Wade Was Anything But ‘Reckless’ At The Burl.
There are two types of shows that I LIVE for as a journalist and photographer. The first is a hometown show. There’s absolutely nothing like the energy of seeing folks come home to a sea of appreciation. The second, and the category that this show falls in, is when an artist that I’ve previously witnessed on a small stage returns to that same fanfare of a hometown show. It’s a thing of beauty and it’s why I knew I had to cover this show. See, back in 2019, before the dreaded c-word, I witnessed a young lady on a small stage in the front yard of one of my favorite…
Rockers 3 Doors Down brought Kentucky’s Cameron Jayne To Rock The Funk Out Of The Barnyard
Hey y’all! It’s been a minute since I’ve been able to catch a show and bring you in-depth coverage, so for my first article in months, I chose a show that features one of my favorite bands, in Black Stone Cherry, (well it would’ve been anyhow) and the fine folks in 3 Doors Down at The Barnyard in Sharpsburg, Kentucky. Unfortunately, COVID reared it’s ugly head and the fellas in Black Stone Cherry were forced to cancel several shows. Believe me when I say this, missing a show in their home state is just as heartbreaking to them, as it is to all of us. Their health is what matters…
